    True but apparently it does a lot more than the 'official' app which is why the Leaf people seem to like it.... also uses OCM which will help improve the quality of the Charging Station data available to the car.

    If it uses the database, it would be nice if it had a way to add to the database as well.

    Proposal: OCM should add a concept of "collections" so that it would be easy to list:
    - favoured routes (e.g. I have lots of tacit knowledge about driving Scotland - England in a Roadster)
    - tourist trails (e.g. The one ZCW set up in mid Wales)
    - specific initiatives (e.g. The plugged-in places, the Quebec chargers, the UK and DACH Tesla HPCs)

    This would ease and codify for later use the responses to threads like the one about charging in upstate NY (which is really about how to transit between one area and another) or Kevin's question ("how do I drive to Switzerland").

    This would be nice for an app using openchargemap
    but openchargemap has no intention to become a app-provider

    you can already select your plugs by provider or plug

    Hi jcstp. I respectfully disagree. It is not a function of the many apps but of the core database (which OCM is).

    If I build a Collection in one app I want other users to be able to access it whichever app they are using.

    Selecting by provider is indeed a form of collection - just a fixed function one. It doesn't help if I want to select by scenic routes or charging along a highway.

    you are probably right

    but I am no programmer, so I would not know how to do it!

    I just help adding chargingpoint in the database that I found via internet

    How is the project developing?

    In the Netherlands we are somewhere around 1700 EVSE's now. I however lost the code I used to generate the import format for OCM :( Stupid of me.

    Two bucks an hour, no mention of what power is available.

    They are charge point from the photo, and they only provide 30 amps no more.
